The title track to Michael Jackson's upcoming posthumous record, Xscape has just surfaced, and appropriately, the lyrics tell the tale of wanting to get away.

Jackson wrote the song with producer Rodney Jerkins while working on material for his final album, Invincible, which was released in 2001. Now, Jerkins has "contemporized" the production on the track, giving it a funky vibe, but maintaining Jackson's fierce performance. Listen to the track above and check out the lyrics below.

Xscape will be out on Interscope May 19th, and will feature production from Timbaland, John McClain, Stargate, and Jerome “Jroc” Harmon. Read more details about the record here at Zumic.

Michael Jackson "Xscape" lyrics:

Everywhere I turn, no matter where I look
The system's in control, it's all ran by the book
I've got to get away so I can clear my mind,
Escape is what I need,
Away from electric eyes

No matter where I am, I see my face around
They pin lies on my name, and push them town to town
Don't have a place to run, but there's no need to hide,
I've got to, find a place,
So I won't hide away

Escape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today
Escape, the pressure that I face from relationships that's gone away
Escape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me

Sometimes I feel like
I've gotta get away

I tried to share my life with someone I could love
But games and money is all she ever thought of
How could that be my fault when she gambled and lost?
I'm tired of silly games,
It's time to make a change

Why is it I can't do whatever I want to?
When it's my personal life and I don't live for you
So don't you try to tell me what is right for me
You be concerned about you,
I can do what I want to

Escape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today
Escape, the pressure that I face from relationships that's gone away
Escape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me

Escape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today
Escape, the pressure that I face from relationships that's gone away
Escape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me

When I go, this problem world won't bother me no more

Escape
Escape
Escape
Escape

Escape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today
Escape, the pressure that I face from relationships that's gone away
Escape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me

Escape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today
Escape, the pressure that I face from relationships that's gone away
Escape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me

Escape, got to get away
Escape, the pressure that I face
Escape, the man with the pen
Escape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta be nobody but me
Escape
